Strange Email From the Forum

I got a puzzling email the other day from the Havanese Forum. It basically was thanking me for joining and wanted me to use a link to set up my profile. Plus there was a link to introduce myself. It also included a list of trending posts.

It read as if I was a brand new member. Since I already have a profile and introduced myself several years ago, I ignored. it. Did anyone else get an email like this?

I didn't, but you might want to bring it to the attention of Yungster, and see if they really sent this out. If it was "phishing", they'd probably like to know it's going on.

I have been receiving this email multiple times lately too. I contacted the administrator to report it.

I got it twice. I didnít do it and just deleted it. I guess I should have notified administrator. If I get it again I will.

Well, I guess I'm glad I'm not the only one getting it. How do I go about contacting the administrator? Do I just start a thread to Yungster?

I got another one today! Ugh! I used the contact us button on the bottom of the page but I am not sure if that was the best way to contact the proper person.

I got another one today, but I donít know how to deal with it other than delete it. I donít want to click on anything in case it is a phishing post.

I received a few, too, but it continues to update and change like a legitimate email, so if it’s phishing it’s more sophisticated than the phishing emails I usually get with obvious font and graphic inconsistencies. I looked through the forum options and I don’t see a way to unsubscribe from there or from the email itself, so that’s the biggest issue for me.

I go another one too! In fact, looking back, it's the 3rd I've received. It also has the trending posts like the other email I get from the forum. However the strange ones always have the same trending posts. Never new ones. I think I'll start another thread to the attention of Yungster about this.
